Trentino Department of Emigration

provincia-autonoma-di-trento-stemmaAs many of us are aware, the Trentino Department of Emigration is highly regarded for the services it provides not only to emigrants from Trentino, but also to the descendants of those emigrants.

The Department has offered a free 2013 wall calendar to all who ask for one (as long as supply lasts).  The calendar has large photos of Trentino each month based on a specific theme (this year’s will be the Dolomites Unesco Heritage).  In addition, a free book (in English) will be made available to the first 100 persons requesting a copy.  The book is dedicated to the Trentino coat of arms, the Eagle of St. Venseslas, and related history of Trentino.  In order to receive the calendar and book, send your mailing address to Cesare Cornella at cesare.cornella@provincia.tn.it .  Please do NOT post your address here.

This free offer continues the highly respected projects undertaken by the Department — one example is the database of birth records online at  Nati In Trentino .  The database contains information about 1.2 million residents of Trentino born between the years 1815-1923, including full name, date of birth, village, and names of parents.

    Can anyone tell me where to get records pre 1815?

    • Depending on the village, you would have to use the microfilmed records available through your local LDS Family History Center. There is a posting on this blog giving information about the films.
